Lord, I lift up every one of my relationships to You, and ask You to bless them. I pray that each one would be glorifying to You. Help me to choose my friends wisely, so I won’t be led astray. Give me discernment and strength to separate myself from anyone who is not a good influence. I release all my relationships to You, and pray that Your will be done in each of them.
With the most difficult relationships, I ask that Your peace would reign in them. Specifically, I lift up to You my relationship with (name a difficult friend, or person or family member.) I know two cannot walk together unless they agree (Amos 3:3), so help us to find a place of agreement, unity and like-mindness. Where either of us need to change, I pray that You would change us. Break down any “walls of separation” (Ephesians 2:13-15) or misunderstanding. I release this person into Your hands, and ask You, that You would make our relationship what You want it to be, so that it will glorify You.
I pray for my relationship with each of my family members. Specifically, I pray for my relationship with (name the family member with whom you are most concerned.) I pray You would bring healing, reconciliation, and restoration, where it is needed. Bless our relationship and make it strong.
I pray for any relationships I have with people who don’t know You. Lord, give me words to say that will turn their hearts towards You. Help me to be Your light to them. Specifically I pray for (now name any unbeliever, or someone who has walked away from God). Soften this persons’ heart, to open his or her eyes to receive You and follow You faithfully.
I pray for godly friends, role models and mentors to come into my life. Send people who will speak the truth in love. I pray especially that there will be people in my life who are trustworthy, kind, loving and faithful. Most of all, I pray that they would be men and women of strong faith, who will add to my life, and I to theirs. May we mutually raise the standard to which we aspire. May forgiveness and love flow freely between us. Make me to be your light in all my relationships.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
